My consultation with Chris Earles on Friday morning exceeded my expectations. And I expect a lot! He listened to me and then discussed & explained suggested treatments to help my condition. Also, the nurse Marilyn was also excellent. actually from the moment I entered the clinic when I was greeted with a friendly smile, it was outstanding in every way. The professionalism if each staff member I had contact with was noticed and appreciated.

Mr. Earls has always explained the problems with my RA thoroughly so I could understand exactly how it affects me and made sure I had no more questions before the end of my appointment. On a rare occasion he didn\'t have an answer he would excuse himself to go consult others to find the answer.

Provider spent a very short time with me; I had a related problem that he tried to help me with, but I was left feeling a little bit shorted on the visit. He is leaving this practice, so I can understand his need to be a bit rushed. Other visits with him were stellar, and he is a very good practitioner.

my caregiver is the most caring and knowledgeable that I have had in regard to my conditions. He understands the pain I am in and when I go thru some depression at times when I am hurting. He explains everything so I understand and includes me in my plan of care. on a scale of 1 to 10 he is a 15.

I had a sore throat and could barely talk at the time of appointment. he checked my throat and said the uvula was red. he offered a prescription for cough syrup but no anti biotic. I understand why they don\'t offer antibiotics readily as they used too but I could really have used some medication to get rid of painful sore throat.

He is open & honest about the challenges I\'m facing with Psoriatic Arthritis. He is compassionate & intelligent. That\'s a combo I don\'t find in many caregivers.
